Frequently Asked Questions


You decide what and how to donate. In the beginning, people could only donate to the workshops, but in 2019 and beyond - good luck at the expense of the foundation. Over the years, many people donated 2 to 5 leva for a card, but some donated 20 leva. Many people with children gave their children to take what they made, and gave them money to donate. You can donate for everything that is made in the workshops. You can give emotion and attitude by writing a card for a specific person from a specific home - you can read the interviews of some of the participants about the emotion to write cards for lonely elderly people. Of course, you can donate by choosing and purchasing specific products from those listed for an active cause - please use the application form so we can plan and help more people. You can also donate to a foundation listed on the site through the following methods, when the donation for the respective cause or campaign is open. And of course - you can also give attention by bringing and donating the gifts you have personally chosen and / or purchased.

Each of the causes in a personally selected - by visiting the home, school or other cause. We have been helping some of the causes for another year and so we are making things even more personal for the people we are helping. We always ask in detail what they need specifically and ask if something is not clear to us. Therefore, in each of the causes we can provide specific things that people need. And we can present you in detail what your donations will go for. And of course - what you can personally donate. Therefore, if you want to donate and read, please tell the story of your chosen cause. For example, what the children asked for years ago and said, they have everything. Try not to cry.

For these children, attention and attitude are most important. Or read about the school in Vladislavovo in Varna with children with vision or developmental problems - for the 2019 campaign we decided not only to help the environment, but also to give these children a chance to have skills with which to have better life after time - to be able to make badges, to string jewelry, ... It's hard not to water your eyes. However, you do not want to pass on goodness.

With this amount, the team of the foundation will buy specific things for your chosen cause.

As you have read - the foundation does not keep a single penny of donations, and all administrative and organizational costs are covered by the founders of the foundation. In this way we ensure people's confidence that every penny of their donations is passed on in the right way.

Let us wish we had "too many donations". Certainly in each of the homes and centers they need more things - you will see how carefully they approached in describing their needs. We will help each of the described causes, and if there are more funds - all will go to the described causes for this year with additional things for them. If there are still funds left. Everything will be described publicly on the site, as well as on the Facebook page. And why not make people happy from the chosen causes with more gifts or useful things.

The causes of the Pass On Foundation are always specific - which home, or other cause, what exactly they need. We have been supporting most homes and causes for years, and that builds great trust between the people there and our team.

The specific things they have asked us for come to homes and causes. They are looking forward to them - because they are changing the environment there. Boilers, washing machines, stoves, bed linen, blenders, disinfectants,…

So - you decide. You can choose a specific cause. For her you can choose a specific thing to buy and donate. Or give us the amount we expect for this particular thing. Or trust us that we have the right judgment and we have proven that we will choose the right things for the causes

Many companies have supported the initiative over the years with donations - Lidl, Medix, Prestige96, LG, Whirlpool and. so called This is how in 2019 many companies donated specific things that we were not asked for by the causes, but which helped to have more donations, or to make happy the people we help. Here's a few examples. Orange Center donated books for the homes, Locus Books donated part of the proceeds from sales of bazaars for Pass On, and Joro Malchev doubled the donated funds. Locus Books brought books to the workshops and everyone could decide how much to donate to a business book. The soap workshop donated shampoos and soaps, and Prestige 96 and Tymbark provided treats and drinks for each cause. Companies such as Sitel, Quick Cargo and individuals have chosen to make a Christmas bazaar for their teams from custom-made Christmas gift decorations for customers and friends.

Everyone must make their own path and check and make sure that a cause and a foundation deserve their trust. On our site, as well as on social networks, we have told a small part of:

  • the story of Pass On
  • the emotion and actions of the Pass On team
  • the people (we call them heroes) who are involved in the cause - their stories of how they make the world a better place
  • corporate donors who have found an example of how a company and its team can help a cause and change the environment of many people
  • the stories in the media from our team, from the donors, from the volunteers and from the causes we help

The rest of the reasons we hope you choose the cause of Pass on We hope you find out for yourself. And to become one of the people who pass on goodness. Every real cause deserves to be supported, so we encourage you to be confident that you can make the world a better place. By choosing the causes that "speak" to you and that convince you that they deserve your trust, that they are doing the right thing.

Did you wash with soap? Have you used cotton instead of sanitary napkins? Do you know the smell of urine soaked in sheets and rooms? Have you ever seen an elderly person who needs a raised bed to see the world? Do you know what it's like not to celebrate your birthday, or not to have something sweet to eat.

And now imagine that someone congratulates you personally with your favorite song for your birthday. That you not only already have sanitary napkins, but also a set of lipsticks and nail polishes. That the people you care for in the nursing home have brand new sheets and blankets. That the elderly can bathe in hot water from water heaters. There are many stories. Because there are many heroes who pass on goodness. And the task of the Pass On Foundation is to make this larger and more significant.

Each of the causes is part of these stories. Their stories. Your stories.

A few. We do not keep a penny. The founders of the Pass On Foundation cover with personal funds all administrative and operational costs so far, in 2020, and at least until the end of 2021. This means that the founders of the Pass On Foundation cover all costs for the team, for transport, for couriers, for the bank account, etc. This is the least we owe to you, our heroic volunteers and donors. The only funds that are not targeted to causes are the transaction costs of the payment system through which you donate. We have made great efforts to reduce these costs as well. We tried to use preferential fees, but .... We are not yet big enough to be recognized worldwide as a significant cause and have no fees or to be significantly reduced. I hope that this will happen soon, with joint efforts. Here you can also see the report of the accounting office on the activities of the Pass On Foundation.

We have chosen causes where attention and attitude are no less important than the donation itself. We will be happy for you to come with us and participate in the donation, and to bring / donate the items you have chosen / purchased to donate. Please follow the information on the site, on the Facebook page, or write us the contact information for a specific cause (HEART)

Everyone who participates in the workshops and everyone who donates can receive a certificate of participation in the initiative. These certificates are not an official donation document and cannot be used for tax purposes.

The foundation's team will use these funds to purchase products and items for the causes. Not all causes receive support for all their needs. That is why we are grateful for all the donations for which you trust us to be able to help all causes.

As you have read - the foundation does not keep a single penny of donations, and all administrative and organizational costs are covered by the founders of the foundation. In this way we ensure people's confidence that every penny of their donations is passed on in the right way.

Предай нататък . This is our principle. We would like everyone to be able to convey goodness through personal work, or with things they own or want to provide for themselves. It's great, and you make it easy for us if you provide the necessary products and items, asking them to meet the specified specification. You can send the donation to the address of the respective cause, or to our logistics partner quick Cargo, which periodically organizes shipments to the causes. Please keep in mind that whenever you donate products or items, there should be a signed donation contract and a handover protocol. Upon request for a donation - we will send you a donation contract and a handover protocol to the foundation or to the respective cause. If you buy the product and donate it and then want to be able to use the donation for tax relief - our accountants advise that the purchase and the donation contract be in the name of the same person.

You can choose one of three options:

  • Specific need (eg blinds for Vazrazhdane home in Ruse)
  • Specific cause (eg home for people with mild disabilities in Berkovitsa)
  • Total of the foundation (in this case the entire amount of your donation, excluding the financial costs of your transfer to the foundation will be for causes that the foundation supports)

You can donate in one of the following ways:

  • donation through the donations module on the site - you choose the specific donation you want to make.
  • For donations of items and products, you can provide the item or products - if you already have them, or buy them from a place of your choice
  • donation to the foundation's account, please indicate what you want the donation to be used for: Foundation Pass on IBAN: BG92UNCR70001523955423

The documentation and correspondence on the donation itself includes all or some of the following:

  • if you donate through the donation module - we will automatically know what you are donating for
  • if you have chosen to purchase the relevant products or items, or you already have these products or items - you will receive a follow-up email, and a call if necessary to coordinate the donation. We will provide you with a set of documents for the donation, as well as we will specify the details of the logistics of the donation
  • if there are specific aspects about the donation - we will coordinate further

Here's what the process looks like most often:

  • From the foundation we have specific causes, in most cases homes for the elderly, which we help - we know them, they know us and we know that we can and deserve to help them. The causes are available on the site, and you can also find previous causes
  • Our team is in constant contact with the causes and we understand the needs they have. There may be common infrastructure needs - water heaters, mattresses, etc. There may be a need for small appliances consumables - remote or ordinary thermometers, glucometers, detergents, diapers, disinfectants, etc. And they can be thematic - gazebos for the elderly, badges for badges to be made by blind children, etc.
  • Needs and causes are announced on the site and everyone can choose whether to provide the product or item, buying it or already having it, or donate for a specific need, for a specific cause or in general to the foundation.
  • If someone donates to the foundation - all funds, without the financial fee of the donation to the foundation, go to the causes
    Many corporate donors provide more expensive products and supplies, as well as consumables, helping to make a difference and help cause more meaningful change.
  • When we complete the respective donations - we send them to the causes through our logistics partners from Quick Cargo
  • Each donation is documented - with a donation contract and handover protocol

Many companies believe in the principle of passing on. It is impressive to see how the teams in these companies are committed - they obviously have this good pride of being part of something bigger - such as values, community, responsibilities, actions.

We have many corporate donations every year, and some of the donors are long-term donors. In this way, they help the causes in particular, but also the Pass on to grow by doing more significant things. And by telling stories of good.

Here you can see some of the corporate donors HERE LINK, and here - some of the corporate heroes.

Pass On Foundation is a public benefit NGO and this allows us to issue donation certificates, or to use the donation agreement with the foundation as a basis for using corporate tax relief.

We believe that we should not hinder donations, so:

  • We have a ready set of donation documents, which have been verified by lawyers and auditors. If desired - we can use your version of these documents
  • We take as much of the donation effort as possible - we take the physical donation through our logistics partners, we move the documentation
  • The founders of the foundation bear all administrative costs after the transfer and / or receipt of the donation

We will be happy to continue the story of the transmission of good:

  • Seeing who and how we help together
  • Who has already helped and how as a corporate donor
  • By contacting us and telling you how we can make the world a better place by donating products to your company, buying and donating specific products that we have been asked for by the causes, or making a monetary donation

We do our best to make more expensive products and items donated by companies that produce and / or sell similar products and items. This is very often the case. But we often have to buy them - a company can not donate everything. Then we use preferential terms of purchase. Or we buy after looking for optimal conditions. We have already bought water heaters, bed linen, protective clothing, wood stoves for people with the right to heating allowances, but without stoves and others on extremely preferential terms.

You can write to us if you have an offer for donation and / or for many preferential conditions. We will be grateful if you connect us with the right people in the right company.

The workshops are designed to allow everyone to participate - from children to adults. There is a person in charge of each workshop who gives guidance. Please keep in mind that you should be with your children at all times - every moment with them is worth it.

The more workshops - the better 🙂 In 2020 we had over 12 different areas of the workshop in Softuni Digital, as well as in at least as many cities as in 2019 (Plovdiv, Varna, Ruse). So as long as you have an idea and a desire to lead a workshop - please write to us to discuss whether and how you can get involved.
Workshops are a great way for each of us to participate with time, emotion and attention in the initiative - there is the creation of cards, decorated jars, scarves, handmade soap, etc. The products for a workshop are provided by the Pass On initiative. All items and gifts made during the workshops are for donation to the causes. Therefore, if you like something in the workshop itself - you will see leaflets with numbers and hearts. Everything that remains after the workshops we try, and we manage, to hand over against donations. People from the participating companies, as well as people who want to pass them on, donate specific items and gifts.

In 2019, Lyuben Karavelov University in Varna joined as a school that passes on. Dejah did great things at the school workshop. And at the workshop and the bazaar they collected over BGN 700 in donations for the causes. If you want to get involved - from Pass on we will provide the necessary materials and guidelines to organize a workshop in the school where you are principal, teacher, or your grandfather teaches

After each workshop. there are still a lot of gifts left and this gives more opportunities for donations. If you want to take from these gifts and donate as much as you want - please contact us before the relevant workshops so that we can plan the gifts and items you have requested. If after a workshop there are still gifts, objects or cards - we will share on the Facebook page of the initiative. There are great gifts, and our experience shows that the donations after the workshops in exchange for the gifts and decorations made are no less than during the workshops themselves.
